Drove in from Richfield, road is long and bumpy. Summited and descended in 40 minutes. Took the Fillmore road down, and I would say it was a scary experience, if you like rough steep jeep trails than you might like it. Views down towards Fillmore are awesome, you can even see Notch Peak very well on clear days.
Embarassingly, I got pretty sick on the decent. Super strange. I saw a large herd of deer near the summit, and a freshly killed/eaten cow on the hillside below the ridge road. I took the HIU route in Bear Canyon, BTW. Saw no cougars nor bears.
